A young female farmer introduced a blackberry plantation into a wheat and barley production area and created added value by developing a new range of products. This was the winning initiative of the 2019 Rural Inspiration Awards in the 'Improving competitiveness' category.
Projects & Practice
‘Nos Oignons’ is an association that supported the preparation and implementation of three RDP funded projects that promote social farming in Wallonia.
RDP support helped a farmer to acquire the necessary equipment and infrastructure to continue expanding his organic beef cattle herd.
A group of young agronomists combined RDP support with innovative financial solutions like crowdfunding to develop a self-sufficient farm growing local, quality organic products.
A successful pilot project to improve animal welfare conditions and slurry management in a pig and poultry farm in north-east Bohemia.
Developing a herd management tool to optimise efficiency and animal welfare on dairy farms.
A family farm used RDP support to switch from cattle to turkey breeding in response to market demand.
Bringing together public authorities, research institutes and farmers to explore low carbon emission production models in agriculture.
A slaughterhouse was established on the island of Bornholm to offer slaughtering facilities to small husbandry farms or for larger herds of sheep or cattle.
A micro distillery was established with the aim of producing unique, high-quality vodka and brandy from potatoes that are not of marketable quality.
